for more information. u.s. intelligence, best in the world, f.b.i. first rate organization. talking points believe they will be found and brought to justice and executed, but if this is an international terror attack, repercussions will be severe. if it's home-grown, that will be another stain on american history. that is memo. now to the top story, let's bring in charles krauthammer that joins us from washington. i want to ask you a number of random questions about this situation. we're not going to speculate here. first of all, last night in my analysis, i had no beef with president obama not mentioning the word of terrorism. i said, no, he has to wait until he sees the evidence before he defines it in any way. we know it is terrorism now and president said it's terrorism. i also said he used the word tragedy in a wrong way because it's much more than a tragedy. do you agree with that? >> i agree entirely. obama is not the first to use tragedy in describing events like this. a bus accident is a tragedy and attack is an act of war. when fdr addressed the congress after pearl harbor, he di
with their financial affairs, the v.a. sends their name to the f.b.i. and they go on a nics list. and all of a sudden that takes away their second amendment right to own a gun. and it says that be in that lives in that house -- so it could be a spouse, it could be a child, it could be an adult child, for that fact -- also cannot own a firearm because the -- the -- the ruling says there can't be a firearm in th the -- in the -- in the residence. clearly, an appropriate determination if a veteran or any other american is found to be a harm to themselves or has a -- a mental disability, that we would all agree should disqualify them from gun ownership. now, let me say for the purposes of my colleagues and for the american people, this is not the standard that we currently apply at the veterans administration. we look at a veteran who's served his country and we say, you can't balance your checkbook so we're going to assign a fiduciary to you to balance your checkbook. you can't own a firearm. think about this. the fiduciary may be the spouse and all of a sudden that name goes to the nics list. why? beca
will say both the f.b.i. and the department of defense, specifically d.o.d., for that matter all of us have a role to play in providing that policymakers, operators, etc. i also completely agree with i think underlying tenet of the bill that you passed yesterday, which recognizes the importance of partnership between the government. we certainly collectively cannot do it all. and we do need the help and assistance and cooperation of the civil sector. and so that's -- i guess that's all i'd say to answer the question. >> if each of you could just talk a little bit about the greatest cyberthreats from your perspectives. is it foreign governments? is it it terrorists? is it criminals? where is the biggest threat? >> let me start and others can contribute. any time you're assessing threat, there are obviously two dimensions. one is the capability, and the other dimension is intent. certainly from a capability standpoint in terms of ability --reek damage to the country wreak damage to the country, we are more concerned with the potential of the nation state, and obviously, we have called this ou
. the united states of america is by adam, an ed american al qaeda on the f.b.i.'s most wanted list who taunts america and says this, you can see it on buzz feed, america is absolutely awash with . sily attainable firearms large capacity clips. you can get them even without ny identification. this from the most wanted on the f.b.i. list. we need to vote in the united states congress. if these young children had the courage to go after their assailant, if the teachers stepped in the way to protect, does congress have the will and the courage to stand up and merely do what it was elected to do? cast a vote in both chambers. cast a vote on behalf of the american people. cast a vote on behalf of these children, on behalf of these parents who have come here to besiege the united states its ess only to do responsibility, to do what we .ake the oath of office for 92% of the american people believe that we need universal background checks. we have to make sure that our body, both the senate and house, take up this legislation. in the aftermath of yet another tragedy on patriots day, the most patriotic
look like. >> two weeks after the helicopter pilot got a visit from two f.b.i. agents said they had taken the photos . used it to identify the manufacturer. they were satisfied that the pilot was not a flying terrorist. it shows the power of just having a little bit of information. >> katherine we'll look forward to seeing more when john roberts host your secrets out. that is sunday night on fnc. >> a fight broke out in the dodger's padre game and cost both teams millions. la's plunking carlos quentin . they used to do it all of the time. they lowered his shoulder and quentin charged the mound. it lasted a few minutes and the 147 million pitcher is out with a broken collar bone. they tried to confront the guy . another player got in between the two and suspensions sure to follow. >> the 7 year old who rain for six in the nebraska spring football game is now an internet sensation. 7 million people viewed it on youtube. that is jack, number 22. watch him run. he had been diagnosed with brain cancer and he's on a break from chemo these days . arilier his dad said that the son's tumor h
adjudicated mentally ill by the state of virginia. but those records were never transmitted to the f.b.i. to be included in a background check. and we know that the shooter in tucson fail a drug test -- failed a drug test, a disqualifying fact for somebody to be able to legally purchase firearms given a background check, but that information was never transmitted to the f.b.i., and so the few son shooter was not -- and so the tucson shooter was not prevented from buying weapons, even though he should have been disqualified if the background check system had been working the way it should. i believe the most appropriate response to the recent mass shootings tshootings is to maket our current laws involving mental illness, drug use, mental health adjudications are enforced more aggressively and more efficiently. but, at the same time, while we're trying to find a solution to these problems and not just engage in meaningless symbolism, we should not be making it harder for law-abiding citizens to exercise their constitutional rights under the second amendment. we can and we should embrace r
the d.h.s. or f.b.i. this bill already contains several levels of strong protections to n sure it improves cybersecurity without compromising our important civil liberties. but this bill will add a significant new privacy protection to that existing structure. again, madam chair, you can see the level of effort that we are doing here to protect privacy and civil liberties and still have a workable bill. with states like china, russia, iran, and north korea from getting into your networks and stealing your property. we have yet to find a single u.s. company that opposes this bill. in fact, we have the enthusiastic support of nearly every sector of the economy. because they are under assault from foreign cyberattacks and they need our help. and they need it now. companies and industry groups from across the country, including intel, the chipmaker, i.b.m., the internet security alliance, u.s. chamber of commerce, business round table, tech america, technet, companies of the silicon valley. u.s. telecom, nuclear energy institute, national association of manufacturers just to name a

, former f.b.i. agent, mr. rogers of michigan. such time as he may consume. the chair: the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. rogers: thank you for your work on this. last year you expressed strong reservations about certain privacy protections and you were willing to sit down and work with us to try to find and make sure he we sent that very clear message about protecting privacy in this bill, and i thought the language was excellent and added to that purpose. it is -- it really does prevent any information from being -- in the bill from being misused by a company for anything other than the bill's strictly defined cybersecurity purpose, but this bill adds an important clarification, this amendment, to make congress' intent absolutely clear. to try again to assure the american public this is about security while protecting civil liberties. i urge my colleagues to support this amendment. . barton: reclaiming my time want to thank my staff. also i want to thank the chairman and the ranking member, see nothing other speakers, i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentl

the 2015 it is our answer to backlog. there's not a plan b. this is plan a, b, c, d, f. >> glad to come up -- >> more importantly, we need to understand better, what is our long-term annual commitment to a program of this magnitude? i realize there are parameters that might change that, court rulings, scope of benefits. we need to better understand it if in fact we provide fair but effective oversight to an i.t. program of this size. mr. chairman, you have been awfully generous, and i know secretary murrow is dying for me to ask him a question. >> i'm sure he is deeply disappointed. >> he is always neglected in these hearings and i have ensured him not to take it personally. i'll follow up with some audit questions in writing. mr. secretary, thank you, and thank you to your entire team. >> secretary shinseki, thank you for being here and thank you for your staff being here, and this hearing is now concluded. >> good afternoon, everybody. earlier today i was briefed by my homeland security team on the events in boston. we're continuing to monitor and respond to the situation as it up folds
that the f.b.i. maintains, depends on the states sending information to the f.b.i. that they could use to screen out gun buyers. as a matter of fact, the shooter at the virginia tech had been adjudicated mentally ill by the state of virginia, but that information was never forwarded to the f.b.i. to be used on a background check. so he could therefore purchase weapons without a hit occurring on the nics background check system. after 2008, we passed legislation encourage the states, trying to incentivize them to send the information to the f.b.i. so that wouldn't happen again. and we know from the general accountability of course, the g.a.o., that the report of compliance with that law is dismal indeed. many states just simply haven't done it. i believe there are things we can do to further incentivize the states to send that information so that the background check system maintained by the f.b.i. actually works to preclude shooters like the virginia tech shooter from legally buying weapons because there would be a hit on the background check system, and he would be stopped from that s
